Netflix has added a “Just For Kids” tab to its Web site.
It connects to a collection of about a thousand movies and TV shows appropriate for children in Netflix’s streaming library. Netflix says about half its subscribers have watched at least two kid-oriented movies or TV shows in the past 90 days. Right now the children’s channel is only on the Netflix website. Eventually it will be added to accounts accessed through video game consoles and the iPad. Meanwhile, Netflix will separate its streaming and DVD-by-mail service into separate subscriber packages beginning September 1 and raise the price for the two services.
